Introduction

Jacob Boodrie
Professional Consigner

One great-looking, V8-powered, four-seat convertible - the Triumph Stag ticks so many boxes for anyone on the search for a true '70s sports car.

The Triumph Stag is a 2+2 sports tourer which was produced between 1970 and 1978 by the British Triumph Motor Company and styled by Giovanni Michelotti - a very talented Italian designer.

Packing a punch with its 3.0L V8 which offers 145bhp and a top speed of 120mph. The Stag is a great-looking and great-sounding British sports car with a huge cult following.

This example is coming out of 5 years of cherished ownership by Trevor, a design engineer who has enjoyed using the car as much as he has maintaining it. He's driven the car to a classics Le Mans show and across France. Trevor has given the car a few cosmetic touches to really elevate it to the condition you see it in today.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Jacob after meeting Trevor the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

Trevor stumbled upon this Stag while in the market for a Jensen Healey, the car suited his needs and height much better.

While shopping around for a Jensen Healey, a gleaming blue Triumph Stag caught his eye in the lot. After a test drive, the Healey didn't tick all of Trevor's boxes, shortly after he walked away with a set of keys to his new classic, a 1972 Triumph Stag.

With a history in design engineering, Trevor knows how to properly keep and maintain a classic as demonstrated with this gorgeous Triumph Stag. It's had the mechanical attention it deserves over its life and comes with its very attractive hardtop.

Due to a new venture, Trevor is unfortunately having to part with this Stag, He has driven it down to Le Mans for a classic show, and around Europe - he'll be sad to see it go, however happy it'll be getting the use it was indented for.

Trevor will be happy to answer any questions you may have in the comments below.

Exterior

Michelotti's famous sleek body lines finished in a dashing Saphire Blue has created one of the best looking '70s sports car.

Wheels and Tyres

The Stag is fitted with 4 very attractive black over chrome Kent wheels which appear in great shape and free from any corrision thanks to the recent refurbishment.

The wheels are wrapped in Maxxis rubber which all look to be in great condition with a good amount of tread.

Please take a look at the photos for a detailed view.

Bodywork

The bodywork looks to have been well kept over the years by Trevor and the previous owners, therefore the panel gaps and shut lines look good and even across the car.

The underside looks like it's been given the attention it deserves too and presents well.

If we're being really picky we did see a few things the new owner could address to elevate the car to the next level - there are some very light areas of wear to the front bonnet, a small parking dent on the passenger door, some slight signs of corrosion the offside rear arch, and the bottoms of both doors.

The hard top is also present with the car and presents in great condition, there is some very minor signs of bubbling on top.

Please take a look at the photos and videos for a detailed review of the exterior to assess the condition for yourselves.

Paint

The paintwork on the body looks generally good - finished in Saphire Blue, the colour and finish of the paint is even across all the panels. We've taken hi resolution images and videos of the paint for you to assess the condition for yourselves.

Finished with the gold pinstripes this Triumph stag really does look the part.

Glass and Trim

The glass appears in excellent condition with no area of concern to report, the door and glass rubbers are in line with the rest of the car.

The Triumph Stag is blessed with a lot of chrome trim, all of which appears in great condition especially for the age of the car with hardly any signs of pitting. The only area to note is a small area of cracking in the rear nearside light cluster.

Interior

One freshly trimmed interior, with a luxurious wooden layout - practical and spacious enough for family trips away.

Seats and Carpets

The seats appear in excellent condition throughout - they are very comfortable and perfect for use on longer road trips.

The door cards, convertible and hardtop roof lining all appear in very good condition with no evidence of sagging.

Please take a look at the photos and videos for a detailed tour of the interior.

Dashboard

Clean and luxurious, the dashboard looks in great condition and was one of the items Trevor replaced over his ownership - new wood paneling.

The original dials are presented nicely, with very legible numbers and no signs of fogging or notable wear.

The switches and controls are also fully functional and are in good condition with minimal signs of wear.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The traditional and sporty steering wheel is fitted along with the gear stick with overdrive - both items appear in great condition with no signs of damage or significant wear.

Please see the interior gallery for more detailed shots.

Mechanics

The torquey 3.0L V8 power plant really makes this Stag fly down the country roads - a bit part of the appeal of the model.

Engine and Gearbox

Please watch the mechanical video to see and hear the engine running smoothly. The car started the first time from cold. This car is also fitted with overdrive, making those long drives a pleasure.

The car has seen a good deal of servicing and work carried out over the years, small items like hoses have all been documented with the paperwork media. The chromed cam cover really does stand out and make this clean engine bay gleam.

Suspension and Brakes

Trevor mentions the brakes are working very well with prompt stopping power, the suspension feels good too; no unusual knocks or noises to be noted.

Please view the mechanical photos for a closer look at the underneath of this car.

The Drive

Trevor mentions what a joy this car is to drive - as a tall man, Trevor found the Stag met his needs perfectly and offers enjoyable driving experiences with more than enough power.

As mentioned, he's driven the car to Le Mans and across France saying what wonderful times he's had with the car.

Electrics and Other

The car has been fitted with an aftermarket Sony MP3 Radio with Aux connection.

Trevor reports all the electrical features are working within the car to his knowledge.

History and Paperwork

UK RHD, coming out of 5 years of cherished ownership - Trevor will miss the utter driving pleasure the Stag offers.

The car comes with a good stack of clean MOT history reports dating back to 1986, Trevor also has a box load of Stag owner club monthly magazines which the new custodian can enjoy flicking through.

This year a new clutch slave cylinder and rear brake cylinders were fitted, and in 2019 the car had all 4 wheels refurbished. Trevor has carried out a number of small jobs such as replacing the wooden panels on the dash to really elevate the interior.

Please take a look at the receipts to see all the work carried out.
